Press and hold Command - Option and R hold and power on.
Wait for the globe to show and follow the prompts.
That will load a fresh OS and leave your data safe if you do not choose Format.

On an Apple system, this is an indication that it thinks there is little or no battery left and goes to sleep to protect data loss. Your battery might be going bad (showing a full charge, but lasting for only a few minutes) or there may be a problem with your power supply.

Trying to put win 7 on hard drive says no bootable device insert boot disk and press any key put in boot disk and nothing


if you have win 7 on a disc and you want to put it on the hard drive , try this
on start up hold down alt+ delete to get into bios
change the boot up from hard drive to cd as primary start up boot up
put the disc in a cd and close it down
restart and the pc should then boot from the disc in the cd drive
you should be able also to simply put the disc in the cd, go to computer , click on the cd drive and run and that should put the win 7 on the hard drive
talk with a computer shop for other ideas as to how to do it if that doesn't work

Try starting the machine from the hard drive normally. Put the CD in the drive. Wait until the machine starts up completely. Then,

1. Click the Apple menu (top, right corner of the screen).
2. Click "System Preferences"
3. Click "Startup Disk"
4. Click the CD icon.
5. Click the Restart button in that window. Your Mac will ask you if you are sure you want to restart. Click Restart. It should boot from your CD

Good luck! Please let us know if this helps you solve the problem.

You might have multiple problems. Are you sure the CD-Rom works? It is not uncommon for CD-ROM drives to go bad in laptops. If it was bad before and then the hard drive became corrupt all before it was given to you then you would have no way of knowing. This would explain why you do not get the Press Any Key to Boot From CD on boot.

There is no doubt that the hard drive image is corrupt, so the first thing I would check is the CD drive and go from there.

Computer will turn on but wont boot


OK, have you tried checking the connections on your hard drive, afterwards try rebooting. If it still wont boot i suggest you back up data and boot the restore CD that came with your PC. If it still doesn't work , check your BIOS, most BIOS programs have a hard drive auto detection function so if it doesn't show, chances are the problem would be a defective hard drive.

Hope this helps:)
